Chik-fil-A Coming to Logan Square?

The AV Club reports that Chik-fil-A is considering opening a store by the lifestyle complex (Target, Home Depot, Panera) at Elston and Logan. May In-N-Out burger heed the call as well...

I highly doubt In-N-Out burger will ever come to chicago. Its still a privately owned company, i.e no franchises. What makes In-n - out burger so good as that there is still quality control due to the small size of locations. I wouldn't want that to be compromised.
